I Can't believe it, this Dastardly page took a long post and hid it before I could submit it, Dammit!
Oh well The race seemed a bit fixed to me, didn't quite look right so you gentlemen will need to submit both entries to the judging stand for drug testing and authentication. Forfeit of items in case of infractions is the rule, so no tears.
Paipo I Really love the little tongue hanging out, it really gives your rock-monster a different personality and I totally agree about the hole in the back being better.

You'll have to wait Ben - the race isn't officially over until all the competitors pass the finish line, and the koropepe is still coming round the last turn...

GreenCarvings - welcome! I just read back through your posts - maybe I met you last time I was in Hoki ? I try to stop by and see Steve whenever I'm down there, but he's always flat-out with his students so we never get much time to chat (and I usually have the whanau in tow).
I'll post some pics of the holes I mentioned, but I suspect you'll have seen them already - "hidden" holes, bullnose, netsuke himotoshi?

Kiwshaman - cheers! Stay tuned for finished pics tomorrow or thereabouts.

Did a little more on the koropepe today, but I'll wait til he's all done before posting more pics. I'm fully back in tiki mode now, and got another two pieces underway:

Ahhh MAN! That stuff is just sooo beautiful. Yours and Tamas' approches to the Koropepe were great to see. Bringing back something obscure, and making it better.
I just wished I had my stone carving gear and taken a whack at it...it would've given everyone at TC something to laugh at!!

Unfortunately I didn't even get a chance to look at the koropepe again until today - I suspect the punters will have long abandoned the grandstands by the time this guy crawls past the finish line!
Still, some progress was made, and now it's time to play with my photo editor and figure out what colour, size and placement to use for the inlay:


Here's my original source image...pretty spooky and ancient looking huh? It appears to be made from some type of stone, but unfortunately I have no details for the pic. I have a vague memory of it being from some European museum or collection? If anyone else knows anything about this piece hook me up. I'm also using a different method of suspension (netsuke style holes in the back) as I think the hole detracts from the flow of the design.






Man , that looks good Paipo ,
ya giving the Kumara Kid a run for his money there mate .
Hey have you carved those white beach stones from Kaikoura ?

Thanks surfin, Duddy and Tt . You know what they say - slow and steady.....

As for the Kaikoura stones which look like bones - they satisfy a specific need in my work:



I've also used them in a few other non-tiki projects where I needed to pack a lot of very fine detail in a small space.

Back to the shed now - more later!

'Ox-nose' holes is another common term too.

Sorry, Paipo. You got it backwards. The cats don't belong to me; I belong to the cats, which is the usual situation. The breed is "Tokinese" (orginally a cross between Siamese and Burmese) that now breed true. They are about seven years old and are nice cats, having never scratched people (especially the little kids who mishandle them) or furniture. Cheers, timid

The carving on this thread is so beautiful I don't even know what to say! Awesome work. NZ has some amazing artisans who use less cheese in their work than North Americans!
